Even though I was born and raised on flat land in Germany, the seas and oceans have always been a great passion of mine, so it was only natural for me to study marine biology in California and then zoology in Germany, where I finished my Ph.D.
After working in research for some time I then decided to make diving my profession and have now spent almost 20 years (...is it really that long already..?) working as an instructor, dive guide and finally as a full-time underwater videographer in many places around the world. Since 2004 I am based in Sharm El Sheikh, South Sinai, Egypt, with its superb dive sites like Ras Mohamed, the sites of Tiran, and the famous wreck of the "Thistlegorm".
I have also been involved in several underwater TV productions.
I hope you will enjoy watching my films here on vimeo and I am happy for any feedback!
